Publisher's Summary

The master of the holiday novel presents the moving story of two people who brave loneliness and loss to find love.

Dear Universe,

Is anyone out there?

Thinking no one is reading, a blogger who calls herself LBH writes about her most personal feelings, especially her overwhelming loneliness. She goes from day to day showing a brave face to the world while inside she longs to know how it would feel if one person cared about her.

Alex Bartlett cares. He's reading her posts in Daytona Beach, Florida. Nursing his own broken heart and trust issues, he finds himself falling for this sensitive, vulnerable woman whose feelings mirror his own. Following a trail of clues LBH has inadvertently revealed, he discovers that she lives in the small town of Midway, Utah. He makes his way there just after Thanksgiving, determined to find LBH. Maybe she's a Lisa, a Lori, or a Luanne. Instead he finds a woman named Aria, a waitress at the Mistletoe Diner, who encourages Alex in his search while serving his pie along with some much-needed sympathy and companionship.

Alex finally finds his LBH, a woman who is as beautiful and kind as he imagined she would be. How can he tell her that he knows her secret? What's holding him back? Could it be his feelings for Aria?

    Story
    "Never Give Up on Love"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mistletoe Secret to be better than the print version?

    No, I am not a fan of the author's narration, so I would rather read the print edition, but while crafting, this is my favorite form of listening to a book.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    His voice just didn't seem to be the right fit in my opinion. Richard has a dragging voice at times and I felt that it distracted from the story. However, I loved the female narrator's portion of the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it did not make me laugh or cry.

    Story
    "Sappy predicable very disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Mistletoe Secret?

    I was looking for a book that would leave me with the feel good experience of his earlier works. I can't think of anything more to say that wouldn't just be insulting!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Paul Evans again?

    No

    Story
    "Not his best."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm a big Richard Paul Evans fan and own several of his audio books. This one fell flat for me. I had two main problems with the story.

    The first is that I prefer a professional narrator for his books. I found Evans' voice distracting in a bad way. His voice to me almost sounds wet or almost as if he was speaking with a lisp. I simply couldn't get past it.

    The second issue is a bit of a SPOILER ALERT. I didn't like how Evans' dealt with the issue of suicide. I have known suicidal people and not one of them was cured by marriage. I guess it is in the realm of possibility that someone would be suicidal and not have it be a clinical issue but it's not the norm. A girl who has a town of people who love her but still wants to off herself, and yet is somehow okay after this guy marries her just didn't work for me.

    This won't be a book I revisit every year, but there are several other books by this author that I love and cherish.

    "Loved it!!!"

    If you are looking for a Christmas story this is a good one. A heartwarming story about love and loss and never giving up. Full of hope and wisdom with a perfect ending.

    "Wonderful! You won't want to stop listening."

    Great story. Wonderful descriptions. I felt I was at all the places described. I could feel how the characters felt. Did not care for the narration. Great writer. Not such a great reader, but worth it anyway.

    Story
    "I guess I was expecting something else."

    I was very distracting to have the author read the story. He's a good writer but does not speak clearly. This made the story hard to understand and was very distracting.

    "My least favorite of Mistletoe series"

    Was ok, but it was my least favorite of the 3 books. Prefer Mistletoe Inn and Mistletoe Promise.

    "Predictable but fun"

    This book was quite entertaining. Though I enjoyed it, it was my least favorite of the three in the series. It was much more predictable which took something away, however, there was a twist at the end that set it apart from the typical romance novel.
